Fresh out of Fordham Law School a mere 10 years ago, Howie Roseman showed up at Veterans Stadium ready for the first day of his Eagles internship. He felt as high as a first-round draft choice. "I come in, I'm wearing a shirt and tie - I'm in the National Football League," Roseman said. Roseman reported to Joe Banner, the Eagles' president, who had hired him to concentrate on salary cap issues. Right away, Roseman had a question for his new boss: "Where do I sit?" Banner told Roseman the truth.

AS ANDY REID trudged toward his inevitable end as Eagles head coach last December, attention naturally pushed in the direction of Howie Roseman, the Eagles' cherub-faced general manager operating in only his first season without Joe Banner over his shoulder. Some, including his boss, Jeffrey Lurie, saw Roseman as a shrewd judge of talent, crediting him with the choices made in the 2012 draft, while discounting his culpability in previous drafts and transactions, including the great free-agent "Dream Team" debacle of 2011, which accelerated the Eagles' dive from playoff contender to their current status among NFL rebuilders.

Picture this: The Eagles are on the clock with the No. 4 overall pick and the first three prospects on their draft board already have been chosen. The best available player is graded appreciably lower than the first three, isn't a schematic fit, and the Arizona Cardinals are offering the No. 7 selection and a third-rounder to move up three spots. The Birds brain trust has prepared for this scenario, but someone has to make the final decision. Will it be Chip Kelly or Howie Roseman?

Howie Roseman could have puffed out his chest or pointed fingers or reveled in an afternoon of vindication. Because as Eagles general manager, Roseman will eventually receive blame and criticism again. It's an occupational hazard. Yet on a day when Roseman was billed as influential in helping the Eagles land Chip Kelly as head coach, he refused to admit he felt vindicated when offered the forum. "I don't want to make this about me," Roseman said. "I think it's about our organization, our team, and giving our fans back the team they're used to. That would be vindication to me. " Roseman had been the target of criticism during the Eagles' coaching search, especially when they appeared to be exhausting their list of candidates.

Jon Gruden and Eagles general manager Howie Roseman have both been drawing questions - in different ways, says Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. Gruden has been contacted by four clubs about their head-coaching jobs - and has turned them all down, the "NFL Insider" reports , not naming names. Roseman, on the other hand, is being whispered about around the league as a hindrance to the Eagles landing a top-notch coach, La Canfora wrote this morning . As of 10 days ago, Gruden hadn't spoken with the Eagles, according to ESPN analyst and ex-Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski . Since then, Gruden has been widely endorsed for the Eagles job not only by Jaworski, but former Eagles coach Dick Vermeil , NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock , former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell , and Inquirer columnist Phil Sheridan . And Gruden would be interested in the right job. "He would have loved a shot at the Carolina job, the chance to work with [quarterback]

Jeffrey Lurie said that he was holding Howie Roseman accountable for only the 2012 season when the Eagles owner explained Monday why he was retaining the general manager. "The mistakes that were made in the 2011 draft have little or nothing to do with Howie's evaluations," Lurie said. "I think it was important for me to own up to the mistakes that were made and understand where they were coming from, and it was awfully clear. So an effort was made to streamline the entire operation.

When Howie Roseman took over the business side of the Eagles' football operations this past offseason, he became one of 10 NFL general managers to handle both player evaluations and contract negotiations. The number is down to nine after Panthers GM Marty Hurney was fired in October. The remaining eight reflect a wide array of decision-makers. There are former players such as John Elway (Broncos) and Reggie McKenzie (Raiders). There are longtime scouts who worked their way up the chain of command such as Rod Graves (Cardinals)

Remember the names Mike McCoy, Jay Gruden, and Ben McAdoo. All three assistant coaches are considered candidates for head coaching jobs this offseason, but more important, and in relation to the Eagles, all three are represented by agent Bob LaMonte. When Eagles general manager Howie Roseman hired LaMonte as his agent during the 2011 offseason it is unlikely he imagined it would come in handy two years later as he prepares to help owner Jeffrey Lurie find Andy Reid's replacement.

INDIANAPOLIS - Howie Roseman's job right now is to find the kinds of players new coach Chip Kelly needs, building at least a slightly different template than the one the Eagles used for 14 years under Andy Reid. Defining that template is a huge, important undertaking in Year 1 of a regime, and it has been Roseman's focus at the NFL Scouting Combine, as the Eagles' general manager sits every day with Kelly and the rest of the scouting and coaching operation, watching more than 300 prospects work out. "It's a learning process," Roseman said Sunday.

Lane Johnson took a drug prescribed by a longtime family physician in April. He learned in May that he had failed the NFL's test for performance-enhancing drugs because of that prescription. A four-game suspension was on the way, and the Eagles' starting right tackle told coach Chip Kelly and general manager Howie Roseman about the failed test once he learned the results. Johnson appealed the ruling, but the punishment was ultimately levied Wednesday. So when he reported to training camp Friday understanding that he will be absent from the conclusion of the preseason until after Week 4 of the regular season, Johnson took responsibility for the infraction.

Chip Kelly is all about the process, all about being a little better today than yesterday, and is content to let the todays pile up and eventually become a tomorrow. When Kelly talks about what he hopes the Eagles will accomplish in the training camp that begins as players report Friday and take the field Saturday, he usually says: "We just need to get better in all phases. " Better today than yesterday and on and on. Somewhere deep inside the NovaCare Complex, however, inside the offices where Kelly and his staff and general manager Howie Roseman have plotted the course and prioritized the weaknesses that must be improved, the answers are a little more specific.

For 165 hours each week last season, the life of Eagles linebacker Travis Long was not much different from that of the players on the active roster. He participated in every practice. He attended every meeting. He traveled on every road trip. The only difference was those three hours during the game, when his teammates wore uniforms and Long wore a warm-up suit with the other practice-squad players. "In every meeting, traveling, doing everything the same, it did make me feel a part of the team," Long said.

Zach Ertz did not arrive in his Philadelphia hotel room until 5 a.m. after taking a red-eye from San Francisco following his graduation from Stanford. Once he stepped off the plane that day last June, his schedule could be committed to the Eagles. Before he landed, he had missed almost the entire Eagles offseason program. After a strong rookie season, Ertz has been a full participant this spring and is poised to be a major contributor to the Eagles offense this season. He no longer needs to worry about finishing a senior project that required him to discover trends in the stock market.

The 10 pounds Bennie Logan added this offseason beefed the Eagles' starting nose tackle to around 317-319 pounds, depending on the day. Even though that is a little shy of the prototypical nose tackle's weight, the team is confident in Logan, a second-year lineman, and has pledged its support for him. "Most people, when they picture a nose tackle, they picture a 330-plus guy, just clogging up the middle," Logan said. "But the way we play our defense, you've got to be able to run. And I don't feel I'd be able to run or do the things our coaches, in our scheme, require us to do. That's why I'm not 330, or put on that much weight.

When the Eagles' first-team defense took the field during organized team activities this week, Nate Allen was in the lineup. It's a familiar spot for the Eagles veteran, whose grip on the starting job has endured through four defensive coordinators in his first four NFL seasons. He has been injured and demoted at times, but the team still sees promise. In March, the Eagles re-signed him to a one-year deal, the 2010 second-round pick's second contract. The team signed Malcolm Jenkins to start in the secondary, but did not draft a safety in the first round.

Beau Allen has legs like tree trunks. You look at the 6-foot-3, 329-pound nose tackle and you can understand why the Eagles drafted him in the seventh round. There's more to playing the position in the NFL, but coach Chip Kelly and his staff have certain size parameters for each position. With his ranginess and solid base, Allen checks off a bunch of the Eagles' size qualifications. And then there's his athleticism. Allen wasn't invited to the scouting combine in February, but his vertical leap (31 inches)

AFTER SPENDING the last 4 years in the Army, including three deployments in Afghanistan totaling 20 months, Alejandro Villanueva acknowledged he still is getting adjusted to civilian life. "I've been wearing a uniform and a flag for about 8 years now; it's all I know," the 2010 West Point graduate said. "I can't remember anything that happened before going to West Point. "It's kind of different not saluting the flag in the morning and saying the [Army] Ranger's Creed. Not hanging up your military helmet at the end of the day as opposed to a football helmet.

As confident as the Eagles have been about selecting Marcus Smith with their top draft pick, it may take some time before they can point to the outside linebacker's production and say, "See, we were right. " The old adage is you need two to three years before you can properly evaluate a draft choice, but it may take an additional season for edge rushers because so few make an impact or even contribute in their rookie seasons. The Eagles would love Smith to make a first-year splash.
